History, Will, Prophecy 

Ilision of (lie Class of 'ill 

The twentieth of September! How well we remember! 
With hearts forlorn, we awoke that morn, 
To learn, upon seniors we must not intrude, 
Must not be a flapper, and yet not a prude, 
But assume a dignified attitude. 

We had class spirit — and many friends claim 

It was this fine quality that gained us fame, 

And helped us acquire an honored name. 

With such cooperation as we had, we heard folks say — 

A wonderful class that will be some day — 

A class that will lead, for others, the way. 

'Twas the thirtieth of September that we knew looking around, 

That a better President ne'er could be found. 

After the President's Tea, no words could we find — though try we may- 

To express our devotion which grows day by day, 

To President Carr — our friend always. 

The Elizabeth Arden Grooming Clinic finally arrived, 
Giving us helpful hints which the girls applied. 
Awkward sights were then transformed 
When the beauty treatment was performed. 

The next school function, the Halloween Ball, 
Found a fortune teller before a crystal ball. 
A magician with his table of tricks makes us recall 
That this was a gala event enjoyed by all. 

The last week end in October, 
Found the UN Secretaries from all over. 
About their native countries we were told 
And of the positions they now hold. 

New ideas and fashions were then shown 

By our gorgeous models who wore each gown. 

Armistice Day holiday came at last 
Finding the dorm girls packing fast. 
The first vacation of the year 
Was certainly welcomed with a cheer. 

Thanksgiving vacation rolled around 
Suitcases and hatboxes were all prolonged. 
Turkey and cranberry prepared for all 
Became a dinner welcomed by all. 

Class Officers now we, to you, tell — 

Marion Cook, our President, you all know well, 

Arlene Burnham for Vice-President, 

Nancy Johnson to keep all money not spent, 

Popular Myra Lou Sisisky kept our records all year — 

From September to May, it was clear 

That their spirit was fine and their work sincere. 

Santa came to greet us 

At the Christmas party given us. 

The sweet voices of our school choir 

Produced the religious effect they wished to acquire. 

And so the Christmas holiday was started, 

As the girls eagerly departed. 

It certainly was hard to settle down 
As the end of this semester came around. 
Dead week and exams were finally here, 
And the girls were faced with a sudden fear. 

The Valentine party was a fine reception 
For the new semester now in session. 

As we met Dean McCraray — our hard-working leader, 
We realized no one can beat her. 
The Dean's Tea is always a success 
Moreso than our dances, we must confess. 

Easter vacation was, indeed, a welcomed sight, 
And once again we definitely took to flight. 

Everyone looked chic in her outfit walking down the aisles, 
Turning around twice before the row of admiring eyes. 
Yes, this was our Spring Style Show, 
And every chair was filled in each row. 

"Oh, Mr. Waite, it's taking so long!" 

Why do you insist to prolong 

The refilling of the swimming pool. 

Our spring formal brought great delight — 
Pastel colors were displayed that night. 

The formal, dreaded exams, the picnic, class day, and graduation were o'er, 
And we looked back on our accomplishments, 
Hoping that still greater success was in store. 

Back we came eagerly, as Seniors now. 

The Juniors, before us, respectfully bow. 

But soon the events of the year had begun, 

And Seniors and Juniors were banded as one. 

After a summer of fun and rest, 

We continued our search for learning with zest. 

As a Junior College we rate with the best. 

Words can't ever express 

Whether in mind or in press 

The fine work of the Student Council, 

Credit for the success of this program 

Should be chorused by all 

With the mention of the name, Marion Hall. 

With plans for commencement activities — 

Socials and studies — anxieties — 

The days and weeks sped quickly by, 

Although to prolong them, we often did try. 

At our successful coronation and fashion show, rousing and gay, 

As well as on our Graduation Day — 

We wished that, here, we could longer stay. 

It is hard to find words appropriate — 

To express the thoughts of a graduate — 

Joy at completing a task begun — 

Sorrow to leave those whose friendship we've won. 

In the future, in days of joy or distress, 

The happiest memories that we'll possess, 

Will be those of our years — here at Bay Path Junior College!

Prophecy of the Class of '50 

It is October 25, 1959, and the members of the Class of 1950 are having their reunion 
at the new Alumnae Building, Carr Hall, at Bay Path Junior College, just ten years from

and libel will be taken care of by the class counsel, Mr. Young.

Senior Hostesses 

Each year a limited number of Senior students are given the honor of act- 
ing as Senior Hostesses to the new girls entering Bay Path. The purpose of 
this plan is to provide someone in whom a new girl can confide — one who 
will welcome her and help her become oriented to the new situations likely 
to arise in college life. This responsibility is bestowed upon the Seniors in 
order that a friendly, considerate atmosphere may prevail among all the 
students at Bay Path Junior College. 



Empsall Hall 

Empsall Hall houses a family of 42 girls guided by Mrs. Pearle S. Ridley and 
an efficient House Committee made up of representatives from both 

The standards of the dorm are set up by the girls themselves and enforced 
by the House Committee. Pleasant living is the by-word of every girl, and 
everyone considers herself a hostess in her home at the college. All parti- 
cipate in and help plan the monthly social activities. Because dorm living 
is relatively new at Bay Path, many standards and rules are still being 
studied carefully and formulated. Periodically, the House Committee meets 
with President Carr and Dean McCraray to report its progress and to solve 
any problems which may arise. 

Empsall Hall has become a socially pleasant, well-regulated dormitory add- 
ing much to our college living.

The programs presented by the Glee Club both at the 1949 Christmas 
Party and the Graduation of the Class of 1950 were the fruits of much re-

The Hourglass 

The school year was inaugurated with the first publication of a newspaper 
for Bay Path. The paper, then known as the CAMPUS CRIER, was distribut- 
ed free of charge to the students twice a month. Since the paper was in 
an experimental stage during the first semester, it was put out in mimeo- 
graphed form. 

With the termination of the first semester, it was decided that the news- 
paper would be an established part of the school. With this thought in 
mind, the editors and President Carr considered it advisable to publish the 
paper in printed form. A new staff was formed, and the name was changed

Speed Test 

The room was filled with an atmosphere of urgent haste. Keys beat their 
rhythmic tattoo, while bells clanged a merry musical accompaniment. Fin- 
gers flew lightly over the machines — hurrying, hurrying, hurrying. The hand 
of the time clock was drawing closer to the zero hour, leaving little oppor- 
tunity to erase the marring error or retrieve the fallen shield. All was noisy 
speed. Replacing every thought, determination revealed itself in the grim 
concentration of bent heads and flying fingers. 

The bell has rung! Its ring is not a merry one as those on the machines. This 
is the bell of the time clock — tolling the doom of the fidgeters, the put- 
terers, the time-wasters. This is the bell ending the first round between 
skill and time. Now the machines are quiet and all that can be heard is the 
busy scratching of many pencils on many papers. The bent heads are 
raised one at a time and soon the scratching is replaced by noisy conversa- 
tion. Then once again the clock is set. 

Time reigns as before. The conversation is stilled. The merry tattoo begins. 
Fingers fly lightly over the machines. All is hurrying, hurrying, hurrying.

1+ was a strange peaceful night by the lake. 

The moon wove its silvery rays 

Over the soft rippling waves. 

A soft wind swayed the dark pines, 

And the stars were twinkling 

Like merry eyes 

Witnessing young love. 

The small waves washed the shore softly 

With a gliding sound, 

And the grass seemed to sigh 

As the wind bent it here and there. 

It was the end of a weary day; 

And the busy world had gone asleep 

When nature woke up. 

The frogs were having a merry conversation; 

The big father bull-frog yelled at baby, 

Who answered snappily 

With a sound like a violin being plucked. 

Far away the crickets were chirping happily, 

Trying to outdo the frogs. 

A lone bird was still singing sadly 

In a swaying tree, 

As a soft accompaniment 

To our words of love. 

This peaceful night was made for love, 
Pure, clean, and sweet; 
Soft kisses, 
Murmuring words, 
A silent embrace. 

It was the perfect night 

For young love. 

Peace and tranquility 

With the moon smiling its consent above.
